Fire pundits and lower our cable bills
I finally found something positive if Joe Biden is sworn in as president. Our cable bills should decrease. Hallelujah.
There should be massive layoffs of the highly paid anti-Trumpers. What can the likes of Cuomo(s), Don Lemon, Maddow, Anderson Cooper, Morning Joe, Chris Hayes, Behar ($7 million/year), Whoopi Goldberg do? I’m sure I forgot quite a few, never mind the ones that were leaving if Trump won in 2016. Did any overpaid person leave?
Also, the late-night overpaid wannabes of Johnny Carson, they couldn’t shine his shoes. They have to get laid off because they will have nothing to talk about if Trump loses. CNN might as well close. There will be no questioning of Biden, same as no questioning of Obama. Our cable bills must go down.
Our illustrious governor is more worried about undocumented immigrants getting the vaccine before anyone else. Any answers to how many elderly were killed when he sent covid patients to nursing homes? Wait till the Georgia runoff. I believe there will be more ballots cast than there are residents. One last thing: Gov. Cuomo keeps talking about the stimulus package. What does $375 million for the Violence Against Women Act and $325 million for child abuse prevention grants have to do with the coronavirus? This is what’s stopping the stimulus package. Look at all items in it. Lower cable and God bless the United States and President Trump.

After Trump, we must restore norms
As we have observed, our president prefers not to follow norms. Norms are defined as “a standard or pattern, especially of social behavior, that is typical or expected of a group.”
Norms allow diverse people to live together. After this president leaves, there will need to be changes which might have to become laws. The norms that had a new president share tax history with the nation, for example.
Why? In case there are money situations that create problems for our nation.
What about using the White House, the people’s house, as a political place of business, as when our president accepted his party’s nomination there?
Perhaps we should make a law limiting the number of family members who serve in important positions. Is three enough or six too many, as we used to hear in a 1960’s Fletcher’s Castoria commercial. Perhaps, a law is needed to prevent a president from marketing his business to anyone who wants contact with him. Oh, maybe you weren’t able to go to the president’s hotel in Washington D.C., or Mar-a-Lago in Florida, but certainly, many people did which added to the wealth of our president. Some people will say that these things don’t matter, but they do.
Good manners and societal norms allow us to speak and work with others who think differently from ourselves. Especially today, with political chaos and the virus crisis, most people know what someone outside the norms looks like. We see him clearly.
